  • A Message From the Dispossessed

    The terrorist attack in France that took place at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo was not about free speech. It was not about radical Islam. It did not illustrate the fictitious clash of civilizations. It was a harbinger of an emerging dystopia where the wretched of the earth, deprived of resources to survive, devoid of hope, and brutally controlled, lash out in nihilistic fury.

  • Nous Sommes Tous Charlie… de Gaulle!

    In politics there is a golden rule: beware agreements that cut across all political currents! The tragedy of Charlie Hebdo has been turned into a farce by the mammoth march in Paris, along with similar ones in cities across France, large and small.

  • ‘Je suis Charlie’? Not I. Here’s why…

    The unifying slogan of these protests is “Je suis Charlie!” I am Charlie, the implication being that the targeted publication — notorious in France for its ridicule of minority religious beliefs, especially Islam — had merely been exercising its right to “freedom of expression.”

  • Frack the EU! Washington’s Frozen War Against Russia

    For over a year, the United States has played out a scenario designed to (1) reassert U.S. control over Europe by blocking E.U. trade with Russia, (2) bankrupt Russia, and (3) get rid of Vladimir Putin and replace him with an American puppet, like the late drunk, Boris Yeltsin.

  • Debating the Character of the Conflict Over Ukraine

    We’re seeing a continuation of NATO’s historic drive to weaken and isolate Russia, now in combination with the drive of the new, neo-conservative government in Kyiv to make a sharp turn to association with austerity Europe.

  • All-Out War in Ukraine

    There are clear signs that a major war is about to break out in Ukraine: A war actively promoted by the NATO regimes and supported by their allies and clients in Asia (Japan) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia).

  • The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Multiplication of Western Walls

    On November 9, 2014, Germany and its Western Allies, celebrated the ‘Fall of the Berlin Wall’ and the subsequent ‘reunification’ of the ‘two Germanys’. Prime Minister Merkel described the ‘historic event’ as a “victory of freedom for all peoples in Europe and across the world.”

  • Russia’s Vulnerability to the EU

    The US-EU sponsored coup in the Ukraine and its conversion from a stable Russian trading partner to a devastated EU economic client and NATO launch pad, as well as the subsequent economic sanctions against Russia for supporting the Russian ethnic majority in the Donbas region and Crimea, illustrate the dangerous vulnerability of the Russian economy and state.

  • My Day at the International Criminal Court

    I have written previously about the two Kenyan crimes against humanity cases being heard before the International Criminal Court in The Hague - in December 2010, when six suspects were first named in the case, and in January 2012, when the judges confirmed charges against four of the accused. By October 2014, there were only three suspects, charges being dropped again the other three.

  • Why New Euro-Canada Treaty Is a Gift to Oil Firms

    By sheer coincidence the media has recently been filled with stories that reflect the parallel universes we seem to be living in. The first were the stories about the international climate summit and the huge climate march (and hundreds of smaller ones) that preceded it – punctuated by the launch of Naomi Klein’s powerful call-to-action book This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. the Climate adding to the power of the moment.
